USING A SAUNA FOR GASTROINTESTINAL DISORDERS
Gastroenteric problems range from top to bottom and include gastrointestinal disorders as well as gastrological issues. Whether they’re acute and caused by a virus or bacteria or a chronic condition that can only be managed and never cured sauna gastrointestinal therapy can be a reliable way to lessen the inflammation and toxin build-up commonly associated with these disorders.
So how do saunas and gastrointestinal diseases treatment plans mix? By adding regular visits to an infrared sauna, gastrointestinal disorder management can prevent dietary irritation along the digestive track, relieve symptoms when irritations do occur, and rejuvenate your body for the day ahead.
As the far infrared rays penetrate the body, they cause a brief but beneficial increase in body temperature inducing an artificial fever and mimicking the body’s natural mechanism to boost the immune system. This induced fever is one of the best ways to rid the body of unwelcome visitors such as toxins, viruses, and bacteria.
And, as the body‘s temperature rises, circulation also improves. Better blood flow can mean decreased pain and inflammation—the symptoms responsible for much of the discomfort caused by these disorders. That means, just by sitting, you can be easing pain and reducing the inflammation that causes it.
Plus, when patients make time for regular visits to their saunas and gastrointestinal diseases are acting up, they can reverse some of the resulting fatigue. Because the air temperature in an infrared sauna is lower and less humid than traditional saunas or steam baths, a session will have you feeling energized in no time.
